LowEndBox - Cheap VPS, Hosting and Dedicated Server Deals

G&Z Host – $2.95 Xen VPS with 64MB

Tags: , , Date/Time: August 10, 2010 @ 1:49 pm, by LowEndAdmin
Updated July 2011 — Looks like domain has expired back in June, and I wonder whether there was any service for the first half of the year. Anyway, another failed provider.

G&Z Host Erick from G&Z Host sent me their latest low end exclusive offer to LowEndBox readers. Yes it is another sub-$3 VPS. For $2.95/month with this ordering link here (warning: self-signed SSL certificate). You get

  • 64MB memory
  • 5GB storage
  • 50GB/month data transfer
  • Xen/SolusVM

Dallas data center. Also read my previous blog post about this company.

    That’s not self-signed lol. That’s signed by StartSSL Class 1 (NOTE: FREE SSL Certs). Most browsers accept the CA but some old browsers (ie. IE w/o CA ROOT Cert Upgrade in Windows Upgrade) and Opera do not accept that as CA.

    Anyway, their server gnzhost.com is using DA as control panel, which has “Damn::VPS” on its license.

    Unless I’m blind… it is “self-signed” SSL. Did you look at the SSL cert details? I checked with Chrome and IE… it’s “localhost”.

    Yep, Iceweasel says it’s a StartSSL Class 1 cert, issued in July. And hey look, five nameservers, yay G&Z.

  7. Nice to see more Xen servers, than the typical OpenVZ that every other host offers.

    Tested with Firefox and shows as StartSSL: http://i38.tinypic.com/2v34snr.png
    Could DNS be pointing at a different servers with different certs? IP is 66.154.118.155 here.

  12. I am actually getting it signed to localhost when I made the post. Maybe the certificate has changed?

    Well. Either way, it means that G&Z didn’t feel like forking over the money for a *real* certificate (though with how lenient the certification checks are with most SSL providers, a standard paid certificate is only nominally better IMO than a free/self-signed one).

  14. Hello, i can see many complaints about SSL cert.

    First of all we’re using StartSSL Class 1 as some people have seen it.

    Second, some browser had problems to authenticate our cert. but that is now corrected, please accept our apologize.

    We are going to implement a new certificate as soon as possible for us.
